    About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

neither the 3% nor the 97% have a total free choice. there is always the box of our nature which keeps us prisoned. try to think out of that and you belong to a group of maybe 0,0001% which can exist completely happy and satisfied without doing a thing except sitting in a cave in himalaya

Sometimes we think we are alone and so we are afraid we might be wrong. Yet there is always going to be another 3% or so that will support us.

He forgot to mention how the 97% (including all buerocratics and authorities) treat the 3%, because innovation is controlled/suppressed by money and has to follow a so called global agenda which doesn't say that it would be great for humans health, the environment or true evolution. This laughing mass don't know the challenge of life outside tiny boxes, because they would be ashamed when the realised the deepness behind this story.

Bernard Shaw said "2% of people think" - really. Here the guy is telling about 3%. So 97% are simply unable to do great things... because they are not smart enough. BUT people like him can sell the crowd advices how to become rich and innovative. Honestly is not often the trait of successful people.

This is ridiculous. If 10% of the people have an idea, then the idea is right. By the time, they convince more and more people... and when the number exceeds 50%, then the idea is suddenly wrong.

The fact being,as soon as the number exceeds 50% the idea can already be getting old and when the number of followers is around 70% the idea already belongs to a bygone age.That's likely to be,basically, the factual iteration of his message, as far as it seems to me.

Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. ...And when Jesus finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he was teaching them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes." The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord. Believe and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior to forgive your sins and to receive eternal life and a way of escape from what is coming, as described in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 and Revelation 6-18. God bless you!

I don’t agree with the premise that there is a 97% majority that struggle to become the magical 3% extraordinary people. I think there are 3% extraordinary people and a 70% majority, plus 27% absolute failures. The challenge that the majority faces is not to reach the 3% level, but to stay clear of the 27%.
